Minimum Standards for Active Coaches
Minimum Standards for Active Coaches (formerly Minimum Standards for Deployment)
When you are taking on or using coaches in all capacities (i.e. paid and voluntary) sports coach UK recommend adoption of these core minimum standards for active coaches
Why should my organisation adhere to Core Minimum Standards for Active Coaches?
It is important that the coaches you use meet the core standards. Here are just a few reasons why:
- to raise the quality of coaching
- to ensure your coaches have the right level of coaching knowledge and skills for their role
- to help ensure your coaches are running safe sessions
- to safeguard the participants your coaches are working with
- your coaches and organisation will be insured in the event of an accident or incident
Where do I find more information on the Core Minimum Standards for Active Coaches?
For more details on the core standards please see Minimum Standards for Active Coaches – Core Guidance for organisations
Minimum Standards for Active Coaches of Children and Young People – Additional Guidance Tool
Alongside these core standards, we recommend that additional training should be offered to coaches who work with children and young people to ensure they have the most appropriate knowledge and skills for their role
sports coach UK has worked with governing bodies of sport, Youth Sport Trust and AfPE to collate training and development opportunities for coaches of children and young people.
